Servers and Virtualization

Keep data organized, host applications, and run your business more efficiently.

For any modern business with multiple computers, a server is most likely at the heart of its computing and networking environment. Servers store data while keeping files and information organized and secure, and help business run more efficiently.

Choosing the right server solution starts with understanding how the server will be used. What type of applications will it be running? How critical are these functions to the company?

Servers can provide businesses with a single-device solution for:

  • Centralized E-mail Management (e.g. Exchange)
  • File and Printer Sharing
  • Backup, Restore and Disaster Recovery
  • Consolidated Internet Connectivity
  • And much more…

And, because servers typically have greater physical resources (memory, storage, etc.) and power (processing speed, multi-threading, etc.) than a typical desktop system, “virtualizing” servers has made the one-application-per-server model a thing of the past—as it unleashes previously untapped capacity from the machine.

Virtualizing a server partitions one physical server (host) into multiple virtual machines (VMs), allowing for multiple, independent instances of operating systems and applications to run side-by-side on a single box—drastically reducing hardware costs, lessening hardware and software to maintain, minimizing space needed and optimizing system utilization.
